INFORMATION FOR OUR STUDENTS
Members of the Fusion will be given a training record containing their grading syllabus. This details the techniques they will begin to learn which will form a part of their first grading assessments.
The first stage (Red Belt) is very basic. However, as they progress through the grades, techniques will become increasingly difficult and combinations more complex.
The purpose of assessments are to monitor progress and provide feedback on improvement whilst awarding the performance with a score.
Students will attain their next belt if they surpass the score which is required of them. In addition to this students will also be rewarded with a certificate and a new syllabus to complete for their next belt.
This will always vary from club to club. A student from another club may have the same colour belt as you but be a higher or even lower grade. Because of this you should never assume they are more or less capable than you are. A belt is merely a mark of what level you are at within your own club. The Fusion’s belt structure goes as follows..
RED – YELLOW – GREEN – PURPLE – PURPLE/WHITE
BROWN – BROWN/WHITE – BROWN/2WHITE

- Where applicable, belts and certificates may than be given out to those who have passed their final assessments (time permitting).
The Fusion reserves the right to withhold students’ grading fees if they are late, absent, cancel or fail their grading. Please provide us with as much notice as possible if you think that any of these may concern you.
Grading’s consist of a number of assessments which for new members are relatively short and require only basic techniques to be performed. As students progress up through the ranks, the exams become longer and more complex.
Students that are being examined will work through a number of sections. These will include
- Pad drills
- Self Defence
- Circuits and Bagwork
Overall attitude and effort will also be scored.
Each section of an assessment will be given a score. These scores will be totalled up at the end of the final assessment and dictate the final mark. These are as follows..
7-14 points = First class pass, this is rare and an excellent score to achieve.
15-24 points = Second class pass, This is the norm and an acceptable pass.
25-35 points = Third class pass, A low score meaning big improvements must be made before you can grade again.
Assessment dates will be displayed on the notice board within the M.A.C and will also be visible via the Virtuagym app. Please ask at reception for details.
Times on the day may vary slightly than what is advertised.
